People are no longer required to show either the double-dose COVID-19 vaccination certificate or RT-PCR negative test report to enter the Jagannath Temple in Puri from Monday.
Devotees, however, will still be required to wear masks, sanitize their hands, and maintain social distancing while inside the temple.
Residents of Puri are allowed to enter the temple from the west side gate. Other devotees may enter the temple from Singhadwar and exit from the north entrance.
The temple will remain closed on Sundays for the sanitization of the premises.
